Northern Ballet Theatre nominated for Manchester Evening News Theatre Award
We’re delighted to announce that Northern Ballet Theatre (NBT) has been nominated in the dance category of the prestigious Manchester Evening News (MEN) Theatre Awards for The Three Musketeers, which we performed at the Opera House in Manchester from 9-12 May 2007.

NBT joins a group of world-class dance artists from the UK and overseas who have also been nominated for performances in Manchester over the past year: Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Carlos Acosta, Henri Oguike Dance Company, and Richard Alston Dance Company.

The winners of all the MEN Theatre Awards will be announced on Wednesday 5 December at the Midland Hotel, Manchester in an event hosted by comedian Jason Manford.

Mark Skipper, NBT Chief Executive, says, “We are delighted to have been nominated once again for an MEN Theatre Award. NBT was founded in Manchester almost 40 years ago, and the support we receive from Manchester audiences and the Theatre Awards panel means a lot to us.”

Artistic Director, David Nixon, says The Three Musketeers, “proved a popular production at NBT as our dancers had the chance to exercise their new stage fighting skills through some truly exciting fight scenes and swordplay. The action-orientated plot was beautifully simple and also proved popular with audiences across the country who found it to be an engaging and fun production.”
